The Converters : Wood & Pickett Laser Metro
"Another name from the Mini’s heyday returned to the mainstream in 1980, turning its attention to the business of Austin Metro. They were extraordinary vehicles, the Wood & Pickett Laser Metro and Metro Plus…
The Laser was styled by Ogle Design, and built very much on a bespoke basis. That meant that no two examples were the same.
The Laser Metro was certainly treated as a bespoke car for discerning customers: price ranged from £11,000 to £17,000 and extras included Recaro seats, air conditioning and leather interior. unusually, it was actually previewed at the 1980 British motor show to star alongside the standard Mini Metro at its UK debut. Like the Frazer-Tickford Metro, the Laser Metro was treated to an external makeover, but Wood & Pickett handed that task to Ogle design."
